Number of Preliminary Notices of Birth excluding Doctors and Midwives

Sean Marshall made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

Department of Internal Affairs did not have the information requested.

From: Sean Marshall

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,

Can you please tell me, for each of the last 10 years, how many preliminary notices of birth were given other than by an occupier of a hospital, a doctor or a midwife. In other words, how many notices were given under section 5A(3)(c) of the Births, Deaths, Marriages, and Relationships Registration Act 1995?

For clarity, I am enquiring about preliminary notices under section 5A of the Act not registration of birth under section 12 of the Act.

Yours faithfully,

Sean Marshall
